It is the first week of June and cats are already in pure Black on Black violence mode. Down here in Atlanta, they had a rare funereal shooting and cats acting all surprised. I’m sitting here like ATL people don’t know they come at cats funereal also? It is apparent that crime in the Black community is completely out of control and overrun by thugs who have no respect for Black life and killing themselves and each other with no regard.
There are two groups out there trying to deal with these thugs, the first is the Chicago Cease Fire where they try to intervene in conflicts and calm all parties down to avoid escalation to violence. Then you got Detroit 300 where they strapping up, ain’t playing with thugs and hunting them down. So we got two approaches where these groups are choosing to hug a thug or slug a thug. The question is, which method do you think is the most effective?
Hug a Thug: Chicago Cease Fire
Cease Fire is an intervention group focusing on conflict resolution before conflict escalates. It appear Cease Fire understand all it takes is one person to shoot at another person, that person is going to shoot back, other cats are going to start shooting, cats family members going to get shot and so on and so on. And all this Black on Black killing started over a f*cking dice game and $10.
So what Cease Fire do is go out and try to connect to the cats on the streets and befriend them and let them know to contact them to prevent any violence from happening. They usually recruit people who have a reputation in the streets to speak to other cats in the streets about conflict resolution and to allow them to intervene instead of going to guns.
The only problem is Chicago violence has increased, not decline while Cease Fire is in full operation. Cease Fire is becoming somewhat of a media darling because for some strange reason, liberals love watching movies and reading books featuring Morgan Freeman about us Blacks acting calm and reasonable and forgiving when cats are trying to kill, marginalize and destroy us.
Slug a Thug: Detroit 300
Now, Detroit 300 is straight raw and basically saying they are not playing no damn friendly games with thugs who are killing our kids and putting the entire Black community of Detroit under constant fear. They appear to indirectly called people like the Rev. Al Sharpton a straight p*ssy and said that it going to take real men to make the boys stand down.
Detroit 300 basically stated they are going to use the laws of Michigan to legally kick in doors, break down windows and conduct citizen arrest on anybody who committed a felony. One thing these Detroit 300 cats conveniently left out was Detroit has a Stand Your Ground law and a carry state that allows cats to shoot brothas who appear to be a threat.
However, Detroit 300 appear to be driven by ego and personality and macho man attitude more than techniques and tactics to deal with thugs. First of all, it do not just take “men” to hunt down felons – I got sistas in my circle who can hunt cats down and gun cats down way more effective than any brotha can ever imagine. Second, they appear to violate every major Art of War law when it comes to dealing with the enemy. If thugs are your enemy, you have to setup techniques to infiltrate, get street informants and track these thugs.
Which Side Are You On?
Do you believe thugs should just receive a warm fuzzy hug or thugs should get straight slugged? Cease Fire does give these thugs an outlet to resolve their “conflicts” but the problem is most Black on Black violence is not conflict escalation but over some petty bullsh*t that exploded instantly into violence. Also, Cease Fire does not address cats that do home invasions, raping teenage sistas and stuff like that. Gang-related violence is a small percentage of Black-on-Black violence but this is what Cease Fire focus on the most.
Detroit 300 put a line in the sand and is going after anybody who is a danger and threat to the Black community. The problem with Detroit 300 is if these thugs are willing to shoot at police, what makes the Detroit 300 less of a target of these crazed thugs? Keep in mind some of these thugs are on LSD or heroin and crazy as hell with super physical strength while under the influence. If you going after thugs, you better be ready to kill or be killed and kill em hard too. But what you going to see happen is one of the mothers of these thugs protecting her thug son is going to start crying and calling Detroit 300 monsters.
Identify or talk to the brothas and sistas in the community or chase them down with lynch mob fervor after they already did damage to someone in the community. Do we hug thugs or slug thugs? What’s your position?
